    Napping space on campus!

    Current
      Help us have a rest between lectures by creating a napping space in the student common room & improve student mental health in the process by ensuring people arrive at lectures well rested and ready to learn.

    1pm on 15 Oct 21 I love this idea, but would worry about shared pillows and blankets, and the potential cross contamination of infections or bedbugs or lice or clothing moths it may cause. I like the idea though of providing a dark room to rest your eyes and brain.

    How it works

    Submit

    Submit an idea... anything that could improve student experience is a valid idea.

     

    • You must be a BCU student, logged in using your student account
    • You can choose to submit anonymously, so your name won’t be displayed.
      BCUSU staff will still be able to see your name and email to contact you

     

    Discuss

    You will be contacted by the Student Voice Co-ordinator (Student Led Change) to discuss your idea and make any relevant changes to it.

    Vote

    Your idea then goes live, here on the Ideas Board for other students to vote and comment.

    It will be live until:

    • it reaches 16 positive votes
      or until the end of the academic year (whichever comes first)
    • Students can vote with a thumbs up (agree) or thumbs down (disagree)
    • Votes and comments will help the Executive Officer team make decisions

     

    Action

    If your idea reaches the 16-positive vote threshold:

     

    • it will be handed over to the Executive Officer team for review
    • they will discuss the idea and decide what action to take
    • the comments section will be updated with the agreed upon actions

    If an idea is raised to hold an Executive Officer to account, and it gains 16 positive votes, it will be reviewed at Scrutiny Group.
